Peace comes not from the absence of trouble, but from the presence of God.

From John 14:27:  “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”

If God sends us on stony paths, He will provide us with strong shoes.

From Isaiah 40:31:  “But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

The Gospel is not speculation but fact.  It is truth, because it is the record of as person who is the Truth.

From Colossians 3:1-2:  “So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
